I’ve been taking photographs since I was a little girl. However, I didn’t start calling myself a photographer until I was in my twenties. Prior to that, I assumed that I had to have a degree in the arts to call myself a photographer. I made the same assumption about writing too. Luckily, I realized that isn’t true. To understand a subject, you don’t need a formal degree. But you do need determination, grit, and the willingness to keep learning throughout your life.
